Good Stuff. Thanks.

I do weave around often (increasing my visibility to oncoming cars, and other situations - plus, it makes them wonder what is that idiot going to do next).

However, I have not thought to use it when approaching a car at an intersection. 

Usually, if I have time to think, I do cover the brakes and slow some. Will try to use weaving more --- I think it is an effective manuver for being seen. 
Ride Country Roads - a lot. :-)
